Leeds tech firm expands team as global market share increases

Headingley based software company Equinox has grown its business by almost one-third with 11 new team members in 2022 as it continues to make waves in the legal technology sector.

Founded in 2006, Equinox develops software for legal professionals working in the intellectual property field. Its intellectual property management system, Equinox IPMS, is used by almost one-fifth of the UK’s intellectual property firms and has been adopted in 24 countries around the world.

In 2022, the business projects an increased market share in regions across the world after implementing a variety of product improvements and adding new features such as its IP Portal, a resource that helps subscribers keep up to date on intellectual property law developments across the globe.

The new team members will support around 230 international legal firms that subscribe to Equinox IPMS, delivering services through a range of technical and support roles.

Sam Nicholson, managing director of Equinox, commented: “We are always looking for ways to enhance our service offering to subscribers and by welcoming our new team members we can continue delivering tangible results. Our new starters have been extensively trained on the system and we’re excited to see them develop and succeed.

“While delivering outstanding services to our global subscribers is a priority, we also go the extra mile to create a fun, supportive work environment. We hold regular socials at our office in Headingley to develop strong bonds within the team, and it’s great to see new starters welcomed so warmly by our employees.”

The new hires will join teams across the business to deliver a variety of services from initial sales contact through to user support. The Client Services team has taken on several new product support technicians to increase capacity and enhance the company’s support capability.

Tom Parish, commercial director at Equinox, added: “Leeds is a fantastic place to operate as a tech business. It has quickly become the digital capital of the country with an amazing talent pool of tech professionals.

“While intellectual property management systems are quite niche, the skill set needed to make an impact fits perfectly with a variety of tech professions, with the talented people of our region proving a fantastic resource for businesses like ours.”
